With a private group, you’ll have the flexibility to go straight to the highlights of the Vatican, ask questions, and learn about the fascinating history of Vatican City.

You’ll pass through galleries of art, sculptures, and other artifacts on your way to the magnificent Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo’s vivid frescoes cover the high walls and arched ceiling. Enter St. Peter’s Basilica through an interior passageway, then see the design and art that's housed in the remarkable Catholic shrine. From St. Peter’s Basilica, cross St. Peter’s Square, an enormous plaza designed by Bernini, with an Egyptian obelisk at the center.

Grab a taxi for the short trip to Campo de’ Fiori (own expense), where your local guide knows all the best things to try. Taste your way through some classic Roman foods, including crispy pizza bread, cold-cuts, cheeses, oils, and vinegar, learning about Roman food traditions as you walk.
